Mothers Day in Marquard

This weekend past we attended Mothers Day lunch held in a beautiful venue, Le Cheri,  on the outskirts of the town. There was a four-course meal, everybody knew everybody and the atmosphere - while elegant and warm, was most pleasant. 

I walked around and took photos - I'm hoping our provincial newspaper will publish them this week. 

It was a cold, rainy day and guests were welcomed with sherry to warm the cockles of the heart. 
While Rina, Grant and an old friend from the mining fraternity, Rudi sampled the warmth, I took photos! 
The tables and chairs (all white) were decked in white. The first course was butternut or tomato soup served with pecorini crostinis
The  next course was a Mediterranean platter: crusty breads, crispy vegetable crudites, feta cheese and olives. An alternative platter consisted of chicken liver pate, chorizo sausages, chilly sauce, halumi , and toasted triangles of garlicky bread
This family traveled from Senekal - 48 kms away- to enjoy Mothers Day at Le Cheri
One of the oldest families in our town, the Azars 
The Ravis and Naidoos another beautiful family in town
Soft warm luminescence, mirrors and greenery adds to the ambiance of the  restaurant

Main course was old-fashioned chicken pie, soft lamb roast and vegetables. Grant said it was delicious!
